I’d like to call your attention to a special issue of the Journal of Biomedical Informatics focused on Deep Phenotyping. This special issue aims to provide a collection of emerging theories, methodologies, and technologies for scalable human phenotype discovery and application.
An important goal of Precision Medicine is to develop a framework for creating a new taxonomy of human diseases based on molecular biology and then to create it. Towards this goal, clinical data have been recognized as the basic staple of health learning. The rapidly growing clinical datasets, including electronic health records, patient-generated self-tracking data, administrative and claims records, and clinical research results data, have presented unprecedented opportunities for deep phenotyping. Fundamental to the development of a precise disease taxonomy, deep phenotyping can shed light on gene functions and enable precise diagnoses, subtyping, and treatments.
The call for papers is attached, but a link is also available on the JBI web site https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1532046418301953
The submission deadline is 3/1/2019. Please consider this JBI special issue for your relevant work and feel free to circulate to interested colleagues or forward to other appropriate email lists as well. Please feel free to contact Chunhua Weng (email@example.com) with questions.
